A Christmas Carol on Saturday 15th December 2018
Adapted for actors and orchestra by Neil Brand for its original broadcast on BBC Radio 4, this dark and atmospheric version of Dickens’ seasonal classic follows Ebenezer Scrooge as his past, present and future conspire to teach him the real spirit of Christmas.
Set against a thrilling orchestral underscore, A Christmas Carol features Timothy West – star of numerous acclaimed productions, including The Thirty Nine Steps and Cry Freedom – in the leading role of Ebenezer Scrooge. He is joined by outstanding regional performers from Chester Philharmonic Orchestra, Manchester Chamber Choir and Manchester School of Theatre in a truly collaborative Christmas classic which firmly belongs to Manchester.
Composer Neil Brand is celebrated for his adaptations of The Wind in the Willows, and for his acclaimed orchestral accompaniment for silent films including works by Alfred Hitchcock, Sergei Eisenstein and Anthony Asquith.
